LiveATC for Android v1.0 now available
« on: May 28, 2011, 01:57:31 PM »
I am pleased to announce the initial launch of LiveATC for Android.  I realize this has been a long time in coming, but the reasons for that delay are many and varied.

LiveATC for Android is now available in the Android Market:
https://market.android.com/details?id=net.liveatc.liveatc_app&feature=search_result

Enjoy!

I am sure there will be bug reports - please document any issues you find and submit a bug report via http://liveatc.net/contact with as many details as you can provide, especially the type of device and what network you are on.

Dave - Thanks for the personal response. On second thought, you already put your personal time and money into this project. Thanks for the offer but I'll just consider it a small donation  :-)

You might want to also mention in your announcement that it costs $3.00

Maybe this is by design, but after 5 minutes of the screen being off LiveATC automatically stops. Is that something that can be changed? (I don't have the sleep timer box checked)

Definitely not by design.  Please send in a bug report to androidsupport <at> the site domain name.  Please include your model of phone and what version of the OS version you are running.

Thanks,
Dave

It works VERY well, been waiting a long time for this. Loads feeds much more quickly than the other streaming app I used. Great work.  :-D

I have the same issue right now after the patch.

@ eltors0
My cut-outs seemed to be caused by inconsistent cell tower connections while driving. Sitting still with a strong signal seemed much better.

In a future release we will improve the resiliency of bad network connections.

alltheway - brilliant post. The first thing you really should do is some research on your friend Nokia. Seems like Nokia has tired and failed at a lot more than Ovi Store. 


App works great for me, I have noticed the stream has reset but it keeps going. Second app out of about 80 that I have purchased.

Is there anywhere else to download this app from?  I am using a Pandigital tablet and it won't let me download anything from the Android market for some stupid reason.  Could someone maybe upload it to www.freewarelovers.com/android/apps   This seems to be the only place I can get them from

It is only available from Android Market at this time: https://market.android.com/details?id=net.liveatc.liveatc_app

It may be available from other sources in the future, but not soon.  We are still working out some app issues and don't need the additional hassle of having to update the app in several marketplaces.

Hi Dave - first off, I LOVE the LiveATC app for Android. I bought it the minute you announced here. I think your price was very fair. Apparently people complaining here don't have a fundamental understand of network technology and what it takes to make your whole system work, or they'd realize what a deal they got. LOL.

Anyhow, so I'm curious, do you have any plans to work on a tablet edition? I don't think there was one for iPad either, but I just sold that hunk of junk and bought a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I think the coolest feature would be to have a tablet optimized app where on the left side is the player\airport list, and then on the right side is an open space for viewing airport diagrams. I absolutely love your integration of the airport diagrams from the FAA into the app, and a tablet would provide the most amazing pallet for this type of thing.

Also, it seems like there are a little bit of issues with random stream stops on Honeycomb, is that being worked on? I'd be more than happy to buy the app again on a tablet edition for $10... so I think you could definitely get people on board.

LiveATC is by far my most used app on my phone and now my new tablet :-)

Thanks bella92108 - we are hard at work on a special iPad version.  No plans for Android tablet-specific version at this time but it will come eventually.  The market is still new and we're waiting for a few things to stabilize, especially certain issues with Honeycomb.

Thanks for the feedback.
